Facebook has confirmed its chief executive will meet leading members of the European Parliament to discuss privacy concerns in Brussels.

The date of the meeting with Mark Zuckerberg has yet to be fixed but the president of the European Parliament said he hoped it would be next week.

The talks will be held behind closed doors at a meeting of the Conference of Presidents attended by leaders of the various political groups.

A follow-up public hearing is planned. But this later event, which is likely to be in June, will be attended by different Facebook executives.

The social network has been embroiled in a data privacy scandal since it emerged that it had not checked that millions of users’ personal details had been deleted after being shared with Cambridge Analytica. The London-based political consultancy announced it would shut earlier this month.
